Suncreens That Will Save Your Skin


Sunscreens_currently wearing_fashion blog

When we decided to go to Costa Rica one of the first things I started to do was looking for sunscreens. I use sunscreen every day (even in winter) as I don’t believe that just because my skin is darker I don’t have to protect myself. Besides skin cancer, unprotected sun exposure is the main cause of aging. I knew that we would spent most of the time by the sea so I chose sunscreens with SPF 50+.

In Costa Rica we bought a 2-piece swimsuit with UPF +50 sun protection for Chloe-Sofia. I was looking for a top with long sleeves but they did not have it in her size. So I reapplied sunscreen every time we got out of water (even if the sunscreen was water-resistant). I can’t find the same swimsuit online but if you are interested,  this one is lovely as well (and with sun protection).

La Roche-Posay

Most of the time I used Anthelios XL SPF 50+ with UVB+UVA protection from La Roche-Posay. It does not contain parabens and is water resistant. I like the fragrance and it soaks in pretty fast. Your skin feels velvety soft. Even Chloe-Sofia did not protest and she hates when we put creams on her.

Alex thinks that I am obsessed with sunscreens but skin cancer is real and people should start taking it seriously.  That being said, if your hubby resembles mine, make sure to have Cicaplast Baume B5 at home. When Alex burnt his back (he did not protect himself with any sunscreen), it helped to calm the skin and rejuvenate it.

I also used to spray thermal water on Chloe-Sofia when it was too hot and stuffy. She did not like it at first but as soon as she got used to it she found it funny.

Vichy Ideal Soleil_currently wearing_fashion blog

After his bad experience, Alex started using Ideal Soleil sunscreens from Vichy with SPF30+ (with UVB + UVA protection). It soaks in fast and you don’t even notice that you applied sunscreen. It is without parabens, water-resistant and sand resistant. For this reason I wanted to use it on Chloe-Sofia but she preferred La Roche-Posay. So she was always covered in sand.

La Prairie

La Prarie Line Interception Duo/currently wearingWhen we were in San José, I used Line Interception Power Duo. I use it in Geneva on daily basis. It is La Prairie’s new anti-ageing day and night cream with SPF30+ and PA+++*.

*While PA indicates the level of protection from UVA rays (the more +, the higher the protection), SPF indicates level of protection from UVB rays.

I like that the Line Interception Power Duo protects my skin while reducing appearance of wrinkles.My complexion looks plum and moisturized. With its pleasant fragrance and silky texture it became my favorite face cream. It is quite pricey but effective. And you can see that I really like it when I took it with me all the way to Costa Rica.

    Sunscreen is ESSENTIAL when you’re traveling! Some people don’t realize how long they stay outside when they’re at the beach or hiking… We used a ton during our visit to Costa Rica too 🙂 Thanks for the post!

    A good sunscreen is such a must especially when vacationing and spending a lot of time outside. I’m so bad about putting sunscreen on my face daily, even when it’s gloomy and I know it’s necessary on those days too!

    Oh! These are good to know! I am always trying new sunscreens, as I have several family members who have had skin cancer. They’re ok now, but it has motivated me to not end up in the same situation. And our husbands sound very similar in their outlook on sunscreen. I don’t understand why mine won’t apply it – even after all the nasty sunburn’s he’s gotten. It drives me crazy! Thank you for sharing your input, Miriam! And these photos are all darling. 🙂

    Hope you’re having a great weekend!
